The 25-year-old has so far on­ly played in­ter­na­tion­al white ball crick­et for West In­dies but Es­t­wick said the Trinida­di­an was a “tremen­dous play­er” who pos­sessed the abil­i­ty to ex­cel in Tests.

“I saw him at age 17 play one of the best in­nings I’ve prob­a­bly ever seen, in Shar­jah in the 2014 [Un­der-19] World Cup,” Es­t­wick said ahead of West In­dies’ de­par­ture for the tour of New Zealand.

“How ex­cit­ing was that car­ry­ing the team on his own and mak­ing [143] out of 208 and it just shows you what a tremen­dous play­er he is, and he’s just gone from strength to strength.”

Pooran has emerged as one of the West In­dies’ most con­sis­tent bats­men of re­cent in One-Day In­ter­na­tion­als where he av­er­ages 49 from 25 match­es

Iron­i­cal­ly, he made a ‘duck’ on his de­but last year Jan­u­ary against Eng­land but went on to hit a hun­dred and five half-cen­turies en route to av­er­ag­ing 44 in the cal­en­dar year

His form has prompt­ed calls from leg­endary for­mer play­ers like Michael Hold­ing for his in­clu­sion in the Test team, de­spite hav­ing played on­ly three first class match­es six years ago

Es­t­wick, who was head coach of the West In­dies Un­der-19 squad at the 2014 ICC event in the Unit­ed Arab Emi­rates, said the qual­i­ty of Pooran’s prepa­ra­tion made him the ide­al can­di­date for the longest ver­sion

“What I like about him is his prepa­ra­tion – his at­ten­tion to de­tail,” Es­t­wick ex­plained

“He’s a hard-work­ing guy and he wants to learn, he wants to talk, he wants to dis­cuss crick­et and for any young man, that’s the way for­ward

“My dream would be to see Nicholas Pooran play­ing Test crick­et with­in the next 12 months be­cause I think he is that good where he can play all for­mats of crick­et.”

Pooran has been named in the Twen­ty20 squad for next month’s three-match se­ries against New Zealand, and is ex­pect­ed to join the Caribbean side af­ter ful­fill­ing his com­mit­ments to Kings XI Pun­jab in the In­di­an Pre­mier League

White ball cap­tain, Kieron Pol­lard, along with Test cap­tain Ja­son Hold­er, Shim­ron Het­my­er, Keemo Paul and Os­hane Thomas are all al­so cam­paign­ing in the IPL, and will al­so join the tour­ing par­ty in New Zealand af­ter­wards

West In­dies will al­so play two Tests against the Black Caps in the tour which runs from No­vem­ber 27 to De­cem­ber 15
